Special attention is given to the patient’s dose reduction by employing a number of provisions such as low-absorption tabletop materials (plastic or carbon fiber), reduced skin-to-film-distance, automatic collimation, fully automatic parameter settings in both fluoro and exposure (zero-point technique). With one of the industry’s lowest tabletop height and easy four sides open access, Apollo will ease both patient loading operations, and procedures requiring support personnel operating within the table area. The new Touch Screen interface, with its hi-tech look and feel in line with Apollo’s performance, allows to further improve the system’s usability.
The wide scanning range provides complete patient coverage without the need for longitudinal tabletop movement, resulting in faster positioning and better patient comfort. The powerful spot film device with line and cross divisions will fit every application need. A unique cassette loading and unloading mechanism speed up even this frequent operation. All table movements can also be activated via the tableside keypad to improve efficiency during the patient preparation phase.
Outstanding Image Quality on Every Radiographic Exam
Reduced skin to receptor distance, fully automatic zero-point technique, and state of the art CCD cameras with advanced noise reduction algorithms are the key to consistent image quality in every application. Should your intention be to go digital, we can provide you with our solutions based on Image Intensifier technology: Diva-D and Diva-HDE, featuring 1K x 1K, 12-bit camera, and up to 25 frames per second acquisition speed in fluoroscopy. The optional image intensifier lift device is also available to further improve the digital image quality.
Wide Scope of Applications
Apollo maximizes the flexibility of the remote-controlled RF approach. Skeletal, gastro-intestinal, tomography, vascular, and ERCP are performed easily and quickly. Chest exams are also possible thanks to the continuously adjustable Source to Image Distance, which can arrive of up to 71 in (180 cm), depending on the specific Apollo version. Extremities can easily be executed with the patient standing only a few centimeters above the floor. Fully electronic bi-directional tomography without the use of a connection bar can be performed in both film and digital mode in any position of the table.
Should you wish to add the power of digital imaging to further enhance the workflow of your room to the Apollo, possible solutions include Diva-D and Diva-HDE, featuring a 1K x 1K, 12-bit camera, and up to 25 frames per second acquisition speed in fluoroscopy. Full Dicom connectivity is assured for seamless integration into your PACS network, as Diva-D and Diva-HDE support the most common Dicom 3 operation classes (Print, Store, Worklist). Finally, an optional CD/DVD writer can be supplied with Diva systems for immediate image backup directly at the system console.
